05:13 AM ET 12.19 | Stephon Marbury's publicity stunt at Staples Center Tuesday night didn't come cheaply. Marbury paid $2,600 for his courtside, front-row, baseline seat - which was face value, The Post has learned. Marbury, on his cell phone most of the night, watched the Knicks blow a 15-point halftime lead to the Lakers. According to a Lakers' official, a Marbury rep called the front office looking for two courtside seats for the game, but the club only had one left - the last seat along the baseline, in the corner. Marbury is making $21.9 million this season, but hasn't played a minute. While celebrities Penny Marshall and Spike Lee, and Lakers' Lamar Odom and Trevor Ariza made their way over to say hello, none of the Knicks players acknowledged the banned point guard.
